THE HOLY TRINITY
Jesus taught us to be reconciled with our brother before any other act of worship (Matthew 5:22ff). If necessary, please do so without delay! Opening Call and Response
The congregation reads the words in bold print.
God calls us to enter into His Sanctuary and worship Him. Hear and speak together His Psalter, carrying on a conversation with God.
THE LORD CALLS US TO WORSHIP
Worship Prelude (Please stand at the invitation of the leader)
Opening Call and Response
O Lord, Open our lips. And our mouth shall proclaim Your Praise.
Make haste, O God, to deliver us. Make haste, to help us, O Lord. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
Entrance Psalm Psalm 8 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet,
all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Rejoice in song together to give thanks to the name of the Lord. He welcomes us into His house.
Entrance Hymn Lord, Our Lord, in All the Earth (Psalm 8)
The Lord’s Prayer
The house of God is a house of prayer. As Jesus’ disciples, we pray the prayer He taught us. Our prayer to God the Father, through God the Son, and by God the Holy Spirit is powerful and effective, so pray in faith.
Confession of Sin
The silent prayer of confession is the time to examine yourself, confess your sins, and repent. It is the appropriate time to pray, ‘Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my thoughts; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting’ (Psalm 139:23-24).
The corporate confession of our sin calls upon God to show mercy to His people who repent. We beseech the Lord in humility.
Cleansing of Sin
Good news! Christ the Lord saves His people from their sins. Now ascend into the throne room of God assured of our forgiveness in Christ.
Sanctus means ‘Holy’. Our Holy God makes us Holy so we can join Him. Now cleansed of sin, we meet with Him. We delight, and so we sing!
The Lord’s Prayer (arr. Nikolai Kedrov) Let us pray together…
Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom Come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, And forgive us our debts, as we forgive, our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory. Forever and ever. Amen.
THE LORD CLEANSES US
Let us kneel and confess our sins together, first silently and then in unison.
Let us pray together… Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbor as ourselves. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways, to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.
Cleansing of Sin (Please Stand)
Hear now God’s assurance of forgiveness…
Lift up your hearts!
We lift them up to the Lord!
The Word of the Lord
God speaks with us through His Word to teach, correct, rebuke, and train us in righteousness. Heed these lessons, for in keeping them there is great reward.
The Gloria Patri
Gloria Patri literally means “Glory to the Father”. We praise God for speaking to us His Word.
Preaching of the Word
God appoints ministers to teach His Word. Listen as the sermon illuminates truth among us and calls forth fruit so that you may obey God in your daily life.

Nicene Creed Christians, in Whom do you trust?
I believe in one God: the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of His Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God,
begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by Whom all things were made; Who for us men, and for our salvation,
came down from Heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the virgin, Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered, and was buried, and the third day
He rose again according to the Scriptures; and ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead; Whose kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; Who spoke through the prophets. And I believe one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church; I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Confession of Faith
Vow an allegiance to live by faith in obedience to the Triune God. As symbols of our faith, the Apostles’, Athanasian, and Nicene Creeds confirm orthodox belief and separate true from false gospels.

The Lord’s Supper is the supreme means of covenant renewal between God and his people. This supper is a family feast for the people of God. We enter the family in baptism; we remain in the family by faithfully participating in the life of a local church. Thanks be to God that we are one together in Christ!
If you are a baptized member of a Christian Church, please partake with us. If you do not meet this qualification, please refrain from coming to the table, and see the elders to discuss your future participation.
The bread we break is a sharing in the body of Christ. Since there is one bread, we who are many are one body; for we all partake of the one bread. We sit and share bread with one another even as we devote ourselves to serve one another.
Cup of Wine
The cup of blessing which we bless is a sharing in the blood of Christ. Drink to the glory of God and grow in His grace!
